Last Place Open in Downtown Millburn

Pizzeta on Main Street open until 4 p.m.

With almost every business in downtown Millburn boarded up, with sand bags in front of their doors as the storm approaches, you can still get a good slice of pizza. 

Pizzeta is open until 4 p.m. on Monday.

"We get our deliveries on Monday and Tuesday, so we had to open," one of the workers, Gerry Leon said. "I think we only have to worry about the winds this time."

That didn't stop his boss and owner of Pizzeta, Dave Giordano, from fortifying the back of the restaurant, which flooded during Irene. See photos.

Giordano put up a wall and built a small shelter at the rear entrance of the pizzeria to prevent flooding and protect its generator. 

According to Leon, one of the walls in the alley collapsed last year in Irene flooding businesses in downtown. He said he was confident flooding wouldn't be an issue there.
